That might very well win the prize for "most pathetic picture of Alex".
Could he look more miserable? He felt very warm on Saturday, and then spent the next several days with a fever. Tylenol & Advil helped some, but not enough. Poor kid.

A trip to the doctor showed that there was no ear infection or any other issues to worry about. We'd just have to let it pass. Well, my sweet boy wasn't going to let a fever keep him down. In the middle of moaning on the living room floor, he sat up and did "So Big" with a tired smile for about 5 minutes. Then it was straight back to moaning.

He's definitely feeling better now, if crawling all over and finding mischief in ever corner is any indication...more on that later!
Since Daddy was in Canada from Monday - Wednesday, the sleepless nights were interesting. Thanks to Grandma Purdy for the naps & to Grandma Schurman for putting up with all my phone calls! :)

I actually have a similar one of Eboni when she was sick & she just laid down on the bathroom floor when she was sick and went to sleep. I don't like my girls to be sick, but isn't it so cute when they just lay down in the middle of the floor, done? Completely cute that Alex did find enough energy to sit up and do "so big." Oh, and I always find it frustrating when I finally resort to the doctor only to tell me it's a virus and they just have to take their course. I really wish there was a gadget that would tell us whether it's a virus or not. I think that would make moms' busy lives easier! I'm glad he's feeling better!
